MONEL®


MONEL was created by David H. Browne, chief metallurgist for International Nickel Company. Monel was named after company president Ambrose Monell, and patented in 1906. One 'L' was dropped, because family names were not allowed as trademarks at that time. 

There are different commercial types of Monel such as: Alloy 400, Alloy 401, Alloy R-405, Alloy 450, Alloy K-500, Monel 404 Copper-Nickel Alloy. Standard product forms are round, hexagon, flats, forging stock, pipe, tube, plate, sheet, strip and wire.

MONEL'S MAIN CHARACTERISTICS AND PARTICULARITIES

Highly resistant to corrosion. Monel is well known as a corrosion strong, rust-resistant material. It is resistant to corrosion and acids, and some alloys can withstand a fire in pure oxygen... Silver parts are made of Monel alloy
Stronger than steel, but is typically much more expensive because of the Nickel used - basic compound in the alloy...
Moldable...
Low coefficient of thermal expansion...
Highly resistant to alkalis...
It can be welded, brazed and soldered.

MONEL • MARKET APPLICATIONS*

Monel is used for marine (underwater parts) and aerospace engineering (hi-thermal insulation), chemical and hydrocarbon processing equipment, valves, shaft pumps, fittings, fasteners, heat exchangers. It is also used for making What we offer...optical frames, for some metal parts of musical instruments, and for many others.
